More than two thousand took to the streets of the provincial town of Pyrgos, in Western Greece, on Sunday to participate in a rally opposing any compromise on the part of the Greek government regarding the usage of the name “Macedonia” by Greece’s northern neighbor.
Largely ignored by the national media, the Pyrgos rally was nowhere near as massive as the recent demonstrations in Athens and Thessaloniki, but was nevertheless significant for a moderately-sized provincial town.
The rally in Pyrgos was organized the same day as another Macedonia rally, outside United Nations headquarters in New York City.
